Addiction Treatment Center Marketing

We’re The Addiction Treatment Center Marketing Experts

That is a bold claim. To back it up, you first need to know how we started marketing addiction treatment. After being pioneers in direct response marketing in other industries, we entered the addiction treatment marketing space in 2014. We went all in on addiction treatment marketing. We spent our money from 2014-2017 testing every avenue of direct response marketing for addiction treatment. This includes search engine optimization (SEO), branding, pay-per-click advertising (PPC), Radio, Television, Buying Calls, Social Media, and Affiliate Programs.

Most other companies will charge you for their learning curve. We made our costly mistakes years ago. For this reason, every dollar you spend with us will be used to increase your admissions.

Since 2018, we have exclusively contracted with 6-50-bed treatment centers. This includes Detox, Residential, PHP, and IOP facilities.  We only work with ethical treatment centers. If you have a dodgy past, don’t bother contacting us. Our founders have over 25 years each in the recovery community and want to work with treatment centers that care about their clients getting and staying clean and sober.

Google Pay for Click or PPC is our initial go-to for most new clients. PPC is the only thing that works faster to get new center clients. We can have you up and running in 2-4 weeks. Since we have spent millions of dollars advertising on Google we bring all that experience to your center. We also give our clients access to our over 1,000 negative keyword databases. If you don’t know what a negative keyword is, let me give you a few: “Medicaid,” “Medicare,” “state insurance,” “scholarship,” etc. If you don’t have negative keywords set up in your ad campaign, you’ll pay for bad leads. If you advertise “drug rehab Ohio” and don’t load the negative keyword “scholarship” in your campaign, you just spent $100 on a “non-converting” click.

Getting Started On A Rehab Center Marketing Plan

Most of our clients have either no idea where to start or have had a horrible experience with a previous addiction treatment marketing company. Before we contract with a new company, we will spend all the time you need to get comfortable with us. We also don’t compete for treatment centers in the same geographic area. If we provide addiction treatment marketing services to a client in Dallas, we won’t take another treatment center client within a few hundred miles. We don’t want to compete against ourselves.

Some of our treatment center clients only market in their demographic area and others advertise in a good portion of the United States. PHP and IOP treatment centers will market within a drivable distance. We have a lot of addiction treatment marketing experience in destination rehabs. Treatment centers in Arizona, California, Texas, and Florida are known for attracting clients.

Let us show you how to compete with rehab and treatment centers with a million-dollar budget. We have successfully been doing that for years.

We will convey the uniqueness of your drug treatment center with content, video, and photography. We do this while creating a personal experience for your website visitors to get to know you. We’ll manage all the little details that will help you stand out from larger centers, as well as other local competitors.

Your Addiction Treatment Center Marketing Plan Needs to be Distinctive

Our value: using a ton of options to help your addiction treatment facility stand out from the competition.

In short, we’ll craft an individualized, cohesive marketing program to attract and retain your ideal patients.

Our Addiction Marketing Services are Affordable

Work with us, and you will enjoy savings because we’ve already spent millions of dollars improving our ad campaigns.

Most companies like ours work with other people’s money. We started out using our finances to test our strategies. We spent a lot of money …  You’ve heard that expression “put your money where your mouth is.” That’s what we did. Finding an addiction treatment center marketing agency that uses its own money is hard. Just ask them.

We have a unique approach to Pay Per Click Advertising. We have a turnkey system that includes the following:

  • Finding niche keywords for your unique treatment center
  • Matching it with precise ads and driving the clicks to a landing site.
  • Building the landing pages from scratch.
  • Building more landing pages to match the ads
  •  

We typically build a half-dozen landing pages for our clients. Matching your ads to a landing page is essential. It results in a lower cost and higher conversions.

Google Ads LegitScript

We are experts with Google Ads. We only take LegitScript-certified clients or have a certification plan. We do this because we are specialized. There are many Google Ads PPC companies, but very few with such a narrow niche. We’re good at Google Ads because we know the landscape.

Landing Pages for the Addiction Treatment Center Industry are Critical

You can’t use your website as a landing page. You need particular silos to address the exact needs of your potential patients. Our custom landing pages will blow your mind. To start, we typically whip out 3 to 5 pages per client. Each page matches the keywords to the ads. This way, when someone clicks on an ad, the information shown is precisely what they expect.

Happy searchers send positive signals back to the search engine, which increases your quality score and lowers the price of the ads.  Win-win.

The best part — only a few addiction treatment centers are doing this correctly. Almost every treatment center we work with drives their traffic to only a few pages. Even worse, some point their PPC traffic to only one page. The reason for having only one page is simple:  it takes a lot of time, patience, and technical skill to develop a bunch-load of content pages. This is especially true when they are designed as isolated landing pages.

Traditional Problems with PPC in the Addiction Treatment Market

If you have been running ads on any platform, you know that the biggest problem you face is getting too many calls from people with either Medicaid, insufficient insurance, or no insurance.

This is what we do to avoid these typical problems:

  • Create audiences by setting up tracking
  • Carefully select high-converting keywords
  • Run daily tests and add negative keywords
  • Write carefully crafted ads
  • Target a more affluent audience with demographics
  • We will even listen to the phone calls for feedback

Are you getting overwhelmed by all the information and marketing choices? That’s why we’re here to help. Give us a call or drop a note.

Local Listings Advertising

A local business listing is an online entry that includes your business name, address, phone number (NAP), website, and other details.  Local business listings aim to make your business more consistent, accurate, and searchable online. Local business listings play an important role in reputation, rankings, and revenue. That’s why it’s critical to see the big picture.

Optimized local or national page listings include sites:

• Bing • Google My Business • Apple Maps    Y.P – Yellow Page • Superpages – Dex Media • Four Square • City Search • Manta • Yelp • Infogroup • Localeze • Factual • Insider Pages • Best of the Web • Axiom • Hot Frog • Moz Local Management and others.

Backlinks and General Listings Traffic Tactics 

Simply put, backlinks are incoming links to a webpage.

When a site or webpage links to another page, it’s called a backlink. Many people feel that backlinks are a major metric for the ranking of a webpage.  The theory is — a page with a lot of backlinks tends to rank higher on all major search engines, including Google. This is partially true. Good backlinks are an important part of a larger SEO solution

Google Analytics To Track Advertising Performance

Data includes, but is not limited to: • How many people visited the site • How much time did they spend on the site • Did they find the site from Google search or other sources • What pages did they visit.

You know who’s visiting your treatment center website and why is essential. If you don’t know where your traffic is coming from and why … it’s hard to calculate what’s working.

Here are some questions that basic analytics reports can answer.

  • Are the visitors coming to your site first-timers or returning visitors?
  • When folks come to your site, how many pages are they looking at? Are they clicking on your homepage and leaving? Do they immediately go over to your blog and read some articles
  • Where is your traffic coming from? For example, are your website visitors finding you through organic search, your Facebook page, or from a local source?
  • What is your bounce rate? A “bounce” is when a person visits one page and leaves. This can be good or bad. If the person was looking to answer a question and found the answer on one of your pages, they are satisfied. However, if they went to a page and thought, “yikes, this isn’t going to help,” then you have not sent the right signals to the search engine.
  • What are your lead generation costs? If you’re spending money on advertising, how much is each patient costing you?
  • How about your average session duration? You may add some content if people aren’t spending much time on your site. Do you need to add a Q&A page, directions to your facility, or a program schedule?

Once you realize which metrics are most important, you will be able to provide better service and increase your census. I recently took on a client who needed analytics on their site. It’s incredible how much we learned about their business.  It’s a small 6-bed facility. After 30 days of optimizing their content, I’m proud to say they went from empty to near full.

Google Search Console – Webmaster Tools

This tool provides you with detailed reports on how Google sees your website. These reports will help you make your website more search engine friendly to get the best SEO results.

Yoast SEO Installation and Setup

This SEO plugin helps you easily optimize your website to perform better in search results. It helps to provide details where the WordPress website can’t. It has built-in content analysis, meta keywords, description management, managing duplicate content, XML sitemaps, social features, rich snippets, and more. I have optimized every page on your website using this plugin.

Tracking Codes

A UTM code is a simple code that you can attach to a custom URL to track a source, medium, and campaign name. This enables Google Analytics to tell you where searchers came from and what campaign directed them to you.

An everyday use of UTM code is to create a vanity URL for each offline campaign and then redirect that URL to whatever forwarding address you assign to it — most likely your primary domain. This will allow you to track how a weekly newspaper ad, coupon, radio ad, or TV commercial is working without creating custom landing pages for each campaign. By creating a separate UTM code for TV commercials and print ads, for example, you can get data on which generates more traffic, conversions, etc
